What you should know about NYT Crossword :
One thing is sure, The New York Times has the most popular anglo-saxon crossword in the world and has daily themed clues. It is an inheritance led nowadays by Will Shortz. To find a word, you need to understand its meaning by the clue associated with its position. Instead of being limited to this clue, you may get help by one or more letters already found through intersecting words. This is somehow fantastic but has some limitations.
In fact, if you are facing an “impassable” word and try to place crosswind letters from other clues. In addition, if you didn’t manage to solving them, then take a break ! Because, ( like in my case ) you will have some headaches.
Not all crosswords are easy to solve, especially the Sunday ones. when you feel like there is no more fun, you can open your browser and visit this cheat page, trust me you will receive a new energy to fix missed words 🙂
All our words fit the crossword.
How to solve York Times Crossword Puzzles in 10 easy Steps :
I think that recurrent players have the same reflexes as me, and even for those who are playing other crosswords from different newspapers like L.A Time, Wall street Journal, The Sun etc. But the following step by step guide has additional quick steps that may reduce and cut the solving time in two. I managed to add them, because they are important.
- Put the puzzle in front of you.
- Take a pen for the newspaper version or prepare your keyboard for electronic version
- Open the page of new york times crossword
- Open the New york Times Crossword Cheat sheet ( Optional at the beginning )
- Look at the first clue and try to solve it; If you find the answer, you take the shortest crossing word to this one and read its clue to find the answer and so on. If you don’t find the answer to the first clue, then choose another one… and so on.
- When you are in the situation where you managed to solve some words and got stuck in some, just visit the answers page and cheat on the longest word and hardest clue you think about.
- Write the word.

regularly, it’s worth it !
Here are some big New York Time Crossword tips that will mastering all the hard crosswords published at New York Times :
Skipping 1 across, 1 down:
It’s a reflex! We begin to read from left to right, from top to bottom. The position of the clue at 1a. is where the eyes go easily. But we are often confronted with the difficulty of this word. Do not dwell on it if you find this word hard to find. Instead, get a global overview of the crossword.
Take a global overview of the crossword :
This is the first thing to do when your start a New York Crossword, become familiar with it and guide your guessing skills by looking first at these 3 important elements :
- Take a look at the mention : “Edited By” to know who is the constructor and if you previously solved his crosswords ?
- On Which week day are we ? If it is Sunday, you have to double your attention, because it is the hard ones.
- Is there a theme in the crossword ?
I will linger to explain how to deal with “Theme Related” crosswords : Most crosswords have themes, when there is a picture a title, then, that’s the theme and some clues are related. In general, those which require longer words ( at least 5 letters ). But don’t focus completely on it because not all the words are theme related.
So, look at the puzzle constructor, the day of the puzzle and “think theme related” when you have multiple answer choices and more than 4 letters.
Look to the center of the puzzle :
After you get the overview, start solving the crossword from the center of the puzzle and start by the word that is the most surrounded by blank tiles. When you succeed to solve it, you will see many new opportunities for words with placed tiles. For example, if you solve a 5 letter word across, you will have 5 down clues each one with a new filled tile. Means, easier to solve !
Scan To find the easiest words :
Take a step back and analyze the clues, scan them to find this kind of easy to solve clues, here are some examaples of really easy clues :
- Mickey-___ : Mouse
- Actor of “Titanic”: Dicaprio or Leonardo
When you catch these clues, just answer them, they are built for everyone.
GO SPIDER Technique :
The best and oldest tip in the crosswords is to go spider. When you solve a word, you have to look around, there will be at least one or even two words easy to find because of the placed letters. This new word is solved, new opportunities appear and so …
I called this technique “Go Spider”, in reference to the animal because of its specific sense organs : 4 eyes and cuticles which “block out information about the outside world”. That’s what should happen when you are solving a crossword.
So GO Spider to have a better Focus and solve more clues !
Don’t Look at small words :
Many people advise to look at small words, here at dailynytcrossword answers page, we just … don’t !
Why ? Because it’s wrong.
Puzzle constructors don’t choose 3 letter words because they want people to guess’em ! They just use short words to fill in the crossword. And when a p. constructor is building its crossword, in general, he first do theme related words, then other words and let the small words at the end.
They don’t choose them because they love them. It’s just done to complete a word, for example, A puzzle constructor has a remaining three tiles word with just a letter in the middle. In construction mode, he will need any word that fits the place and there is at least one.
Memorize these 3 letters words :
If you are about to finish a crossword and you have a list of short words left then you will need to memorize our list of the 11 most frequent short words which will help you to solve the maximum of 3 letter words. It is as follows : ERA, ETA, ACE, ALE, ODE, ALA, SEE, ARI, ATE, EAR, ERR.
They are listed in descending order of frequency.
Grammatical relation between Clues and Answers:
The rule is general and is applied also for new york times crossword, always pay attention to the grammatical relation. This is the list of the most relations to keep in mind when answering :
- Clue in Plural : Answer with “S”, in plural.
- Clue in Past tense : Answer in Past with “ED”, pay attention of course to irregular verbs.
- Clue is an action in progressive form : Answer will be in “ING” form too.
- Clue includes a comparative word : Means the answer ends with “EST” , “IEST” or “ER”
- Clue is an Adverb with “ly” : Answer will be with “LY”
- Clue is in a different language or talk about a non english region : Expect the answer to be with this same language for exemple “good morning in Paris” have the answer “Bonjour”.
